Sigi Pineda Mexican silver modernist Dangle Earrings ~ peas in a pod

on Apr 21, 2020 in archived

Mid-century mod “peas-in-a-pod” Mexican silver dangle earrings, this set is signed by Sigi Pineda and it’s an iconic creation for the renowned Taxco modernist. I think Sigi was at his best when he worked with designs that contrasted niello-ed surfaces with brushed silver pearls. There is nothing classier than the marriage of black and gleaming sterling yet the textured beads add a dimension that enriches the earrings’ visual impact. Gorgeous and timelessly elegant…
